Today’s show that you’re missing is Orphan Black.
You are standing on a subway platform, waiting for a train.
You see your doppelganger, and they commit suicide right in front of your eyes.
That’s the beginning of Orphan Black.
It draws you in.
What is it about?
Sounds wild, and it is. But, it makes sense, mainly on the strength of phenomenal acting of Tatiana Maslany, who plays every clone, and makes you forget that one person is acting out all the different roles. She’s THAT good.
From BBC America:
In a season where the sisters will have to go back to the beginning, fans will find the clones, and those who love them, as clueless about their fate as we first met them in season one. They now know what they are, who created them, and who was trying to destroy them; but what if everything they thought they knew, was a misdirect? What if they were sent down the wrong rabbit hole? What if they missed a crucial chapter of the mystery? When Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) returns home from her Icelandic hideout to track down an elusive new clone tied to Beth (Maslany), she and her sisters will band together to uncover the truth, no matter who they have to hurt in the process”
